- Art Textiles Made in Britain
Art Textiles: Made in Britain has ten full time members and two guest artists for each exhibition. All are well-known exhibiting textile artists, but the unique feature of the group is the mix of disciplines: painters, embroiderers, collage and mixed media artists as well as quiltmakers. The group was established in 2012 specifically to celebrate British art textiles. All members are or have been teachers and most are well-known authors. The two guest artists each time comprise one well-known and one emergent artist.
Wild is the theme of the current exhibition, and a huge inspiration it has proved to be. It would be a dull world without the wild elements: wild animals, wild people, wild patterns, wild colour and more – even wild stitching. The work is cutting edge, colourful, exuberant and above all varied. A full catalogue is available at each location.
